How basal implants treat missing teeth with severe bone loss
Basal dental implants are the best solution for the full dental restoration of patients with missing teeth and severe bone loss. Basal implants avoid additional procedures like bone grafting and sinus lift.
Basal dental implants make it possible to recreate a full dentition for patients who have been edentulous for several years and have severe bone atrophy.
What is edentulism?
And what is bone atrophy?
Edentulism is missing teeth. It can be partial or total. Tooth loss leads to the resorption of the soft gum tissue that holds the tooth in place. The gums recede. This process of gum resorption takes 18 months. The volume of this cancellous bone decreases in height and density. It is called bone atrophy.
Treatment of edentulism with basal dental implants
How do basal implants treat edentulous patients with severe bone loss?
Basal implantology is the best solution for treating total or partial edentulism. Basal implants help recreate the natural functionality of the mouth to chew normally. It restores the patient’s dentition with a full set of fixed teeth.
Basal dental implants are the best solution because they are longer and fixed in the cortical bone, which is harder and deeper than the roots of the teeth. They are therefore unaffected by gum resorption.
How do basal implants compensate for bone atrophy?
Basal implants can replace all teeth, even in patients who have been edentulous for several years. Basal dental implants are fixed in the cortical bone of the skull, which does not disappear with tooth loss.
Basal implants are placed along the entire length of the jaw to support full bridges and restore the patient’s full dentition.
Comment compenser l’atrophie osseuse?
Edentulism causes automatic resorption of the gum’s cancellous bone. It disappears over a period of 18 months. All that remains is cortical bone which is a deeper layer of bone. And basal dental implants that are longer are fixed in this cortical bone. They do not depend on the soft cancellous bone of the gums like conventional implants. So there’s no need for bone grafting or sinus lift.
Reversed dental occlusion
How do basal implants correct a reverse bite?
Reversed occlusion is also called reversed bite or underbite in orthodontics. A reversed occlusion is the result of tooth loss especially at the back of the jaws.
Tooth loss leads to a remodeling of the jaw bone. The jaws become deformed. The upper jaw shrinks in volume whilst the lower jaw widens. As a result the lower jaw positions itself in front of the upper jaw creating a reverse bite. The reverse occlusion is associated with a loss of height of the jaws.
In many cases, a basal implant can correct the reversed bite. A good implantologist will be able to correct the occlusion with good contact between the 2 jaws to chew normally

How is basal dental implantation performed?
How do dentists place basal dental implants for a toothless patient?
In basal implantology, missing teeth are replaced by basal dental implants fixed along the entire length of the jaw, including behind the sinuses. Pterygoid dental implants are fixed behind the sinuses to replace the missing molars. The dentist can thus recreate the natural functionality of the mouth for the patient to chew normally.
The basal implantation is performed in one five-day visit. The implantologist will extract any teeth that are unstable or moving. Stable teeth, however, can be retained and trimmed for use as a support for the prosthesis. Where teeth are missing, he will add basal implants along the entire length of the jaw to create support points.
Typically, for edentulous patients the implant dentist places 10 to 12 basal dental implants on the upper jaw and 8 to 10 implants on the lower jaw to replace the missing teeth. The dentist might use teeth that are stable. Afterwards a full bridge of 14 crowns is placed on each jaw.
How much time to treat edentulism
How long does a full dental restoration take with basal dental implants?
With immediate-loading basal dental implants the dental restoration takes only 5 days.

FAQ Dental Implants for Edentulism
Partial and total edentulism can be treated with dental implants. Basal dental implants are the best solution because they avoid bone grafting and sinus lift. Basal dental implants compensate for the bone loss associated with edentulism because they are longer and fixed into the hard cortical bone.
Below are answers to the most frequently asked questions regarding the dental implants for edentulous patients.
Dental implants for smokers
Basal dental implants are the best solution for smokers because they are not affected by the resorption of the gums due to cigarette smoke.
Dental implants for diabetics
Basal implants are the best solution for patients who suffer from diabetes because they are fixed in the cortical bone that is not affected by resorption.
